Portrait of Emily, gender-ambiguous person, with short brown hair, hazel eyes, and a warm smile.

Emily Martinez is a new media artist, 1st generation immigrant/refugee (Cuba > Miami), and a self-taught coder who believes in technological disobedience and the tactical misuse of technology. Their art has been exhibited internationally, mostly through collaborations with Anxious to Make and Queer AI. Their solo work is a departure from previous collaborations and a return to unburying histories of immigrant, queer un/belonging. When Emily is not working, she is learning to love and doing their energy work.

Emily’s art and research has been published in Art in America, Media-N, Leonardo Journal (MIT Press), Temporary Art Review, and Filmmaker Magazine. Their work has been exhibited at international venues, including Hebbel am Ufer HAU4 (Berlin, DE), Drugo More (Rijeka, Croatia), Transmediale (Berlin, DE), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), MoMA PS1 (New York), V2_Lab for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam, NL), The Luminary (St. Louis), The Institute of Network Cultures (Amsterdam, NL), and The Wrong Biennale.
